Barely used and in mint condition with original boxes. KEF has taken a new style direction in custom installation with the Ci400 and the Ci400T.

Developed from the proven multi-award winning KHT2005, the innovative and stylish cast aluminium loudspeakers offer many advantages and benefits to the professional installer.

Using high-grade crossover components in conjunction with the Uni-Q® array contributes to hi-fi sound quality across the full frequency range, making the product ideal for both foreground and background music.

Choose the Ci400 with its adjustable ball joint and you have flexibility in positioning. Use it on its own base, mounted horizontally or vertically on walls, on ceilings or, using the heavy duty mounting bracket, attached to poles.

Decide on the Ci400T and you have the additional transformer mounted within the base, providing an option for use with 70/100v line systems.

Commercial installations requiring hi-fi performance will benefit from these stylish speakers.
Ci400 Features and Benefits

The 2-way Ci400 combines 50W power handling and 88dB sensitivity, for a maximum output of 104dB. A stylish cast aluminium reflex ported enclosure with 100mm (4”) polypropylene bass/mid cone and coincident mounted, twin neodymium magnet, 19mm (3⁄4”) aluminium dome, high-frequency unit. A choice of silver, soft black or pearl white finishes to suit architectural requirements.

Developed from the multi -award winning KHT2005, the Ci400 is an innovative loudspeaker offering many advantages and benefits to the professional installer.

The discrete, but aesthetically pleasing, cast aluminium enclosure houses a 100mm UNI-Q® driver array designed to provide ultra wide dispersion and uniformity of sound quality throughout the listening area – an essential attribute for commercial applications.

Unlike other ‘so - called’ coincident source loudspeakers, KEF’s revolutionary UNI-Q® technology positions a fully functioning moving coil tweeter at the exact acoustic centre of the mid/bass cone. The use of high-grade crossover componentsin conjunction with the UNI-Q® array contribute to hi-fi sound quality across the full
frequency range, making the product ideal for both foreground and background music.

The adjustable ball joint between the loudspeaker cabinet and heavy duty mounting bracket provides flexibility in
positioning, enabling horizontal or vertical placement on walls, ceilings, in corners, or on shelves. An optional transformer is available, mounted within the bracket,
for use with 70/100v line systems.

Despite the small size, it delivers extremely impressive performance; and with a choice of silver, soft black or pearl white finishes, to cater for a variety of interior décor schemes and architectural specifications, it is ideally suited to commercial installations such as bars, restaurants, leisure facilities or retail outlets.
